in kiev. let's get the latest from what he has to say. remember, ukraine mobilizing its military within the last 48 hours. as russia tie-ins its grip on the crimea. ryan chilcote has been joining -- following the story by kiev -- from kiev and he joins us by phone. foreign secretary arrived here earlier in the day. like you said, there is going to be a whole number of foreign ambassadors and secretaries who are coming here. saying thatbeen russia complained that its interests in the east and the south of the country when it comes to the russian speaking population had been ignored. of course, first and foremost, he is saying that he is in ukraine to express his support for ukrainian sovereignty. i think we can expect quite clearly him to work very carefully with secretary kerry of the united states who will be in late tonight and with the ukrainians tomorrow morning to do what he can to prop up ukraine but at the same time tried to, with a way to punish russia. to speed with the latest military situation. clearly a mobilization has taken place over the weekend. but it is not clear who i

on in ukraine right now. peter is live from kiev, managing director at dragon capital. tell us what it is like. what is the mood and climate? what are you hearing from the crimea? >> thanks for inviting me on this show. it is always good to be there. what i can say about ukraine and the kiev in particular is the situation and he is --kiev is quite calm. it is not business as usual but it has scaled back in terms of intensity compared to what we had a week or so ago. news from the rest of the country is quite volatile. we are hearing some news that there is some sort of standoff between different groups in the east of the country. and obviously you have crimea which is an entirely different ballgame altogether. it is quite volatile and contrasted whether you -- when you look at different parts of the country. that is what i can say right now. vladimir putin is fully aware of the u.s. and the western perspective here? he's using this as a chance for them to take back territory that was mistakenly given away before. there is definitely elements of that. one thing that one has to understand about
is in kiev. christian amanpour joins me in new york. the facts on the ground indicate that ukraine has effectively lost the peninsula. tell me, what es t's the mood i capital? >> reporter: there is a great sense of anger among many of the ukrainians. you speak to men in the square and they say they are pretty much prepared to fight for their country, to fight to maintain ukraine's territory. people are singing patriotic songs. behind that, you get the sense that people are deeply concerned, even fearful about what a full blown conflict with russia. the giant neighbor to the east of ukraine, would actually mean. the interim officials of the administration here in kiev, they have been saying they want this to resolve diplomatically. at the same time, they have called up their reservists and started putting them on a military footing. there is a real sense tension and dane jury? the air, john. >> also, matthew chance in dehe have, anger, fervor, concern. christiane amanpour, you just spoke to the woman who cob the central figure in ukraine's future. what is she saying right now, anger, fe

urning it's back. with all of the dynamics the last several days in kiev and capital of ukraine you still have the successor government, an anti-russian government, calling to the u.s. for support, looking west to europe. i think the big choices, putin has to decide how much he wants to risk. how much he wants the put on the table. europe has to decide whether it's really willing to stand behind the people of ukraine in what will be a very expensive effort to pull them from russia towards europe. if russia offered $15 billion, couple times that anyway is going to be the cost of this effort. >> schieffer: david, obviously this -- nobody planned it to happen this way but the fact that the administration decided to unvail its plans to scale back and kind of redesign the american military, it happens at the first of the week then all of this happens toward the end of the week. does the fact -- the question that i asked secretary miguel, you know, how do you do that. i think everybody knows we have to redesign the military, but how do you do that without leaving the impression that we're with
